India is in the midst of perhaps the worst COVID19 surge seen in the region. Hospitals and medical facilities are buckling under the immense stress being placed upon them. Despite stringent measures to control the outbreak, the situation is far from under control.

Being a responsible corporate citizen, Samsung has joined India in its fight against the COVID19 pandemic. The company has pledged $5 million in a donation to support the ongoing efforts.


This is Samsung’s second support package for India’s COVID19 fight

Samsung will be providing $5 million (INR 37 Crores) to help India during the current surge. Donations from this amount will be disbursed to central and state governments. The funds will boost the healthcare section with necessary medical equipment for hospitals.

The company has taken this decision after consultation with the relevant stakeholders in India and assessing the needs of local administrations. $3 million out of the pledged amount will be donated to the Centre and the states of Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

Samsung will also be providing $2 million worth of medical supplies. This includes 100 Oxygen Concentrators, 3,000 Oxygen Cylinders and one million LDS syringes. These supplies will be offered to the states of Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

Furthermore, Samsung will also cover the vaccination costs of more than 50,000 eligible employees and beneficiaries in India. The vaccination drive will include all Samsung Experience Consultants that work at electronic retail stores in India.

Samsung had also made a significant contribution in April last year to support India’s fight against the pandemic. It provided a donation to the Central government and support to the local administration in Noida.


We(Indians) are grateful to Samsung, thank you Samsung for doing such supports 🙏🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤

Yeah, I know. 😅😅😅

People say Samsung is worst cause it's so called OVERPRICED for them 😂😂😂 without having the knowledge that what Samsung provides users a High level security that no Android brand does.

People/ immature people consider a device best only when it provides top notch specifications under 20k. 🤣🤣🤣
They don't even care about their privacy. 😂😂😂

Here you won't see those people cause it's a Samsung community but if you check YouTube comment section of a Samsung device unboxing video you'll notice people mocking Samsung just for it's price. 😂😂😂
